Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it. :)

I think you misread him. He said it the goal is for it to be simple,
he didn't say other people's works are complicated. Besides; I think
Jim would be the first to admit that some of his other works are
actually a bit harder to understand for other people. Zope 2 and Zope
3, which Jim both designed, are considered by many to be more than a
little bit intimidating.

You're reading things that Jim didn't write anywhere as far as I know.
He doesn't compare Bobo with anything else. He just states what the
goal is. What he does say is that he built Bobo on other people's
work, giving it credit.
